Abstract

Full title: Opinion of the Economic and Social Committee on:
- the Proposal for a Decision of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the Multiannual Framework Programme 2002-2006 of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities aimed at contributing towards the creation of the European Research Area; and
- the Proposal for a Council Decision concerning the Multiannual Framework Programme 2002-2006 of the European Atomic Energy Community (Euratom) for research and training activities aimed at contributing towards the creation of the European Research Area

In its Opinion, the Committee considered it necessary to set a 50 % increase in the overall Community RTD budget as a medium-term policy objective and call upon the Member States and firms to adopt a similar attitude. It also wanted the sixth framework programme to be refocused around three objectives according to the time frame necessary for carrying out (short-, medium- and long-term) actions and projects structured in line with the principles of transparency and equal access.
